Ernest Hemingway was a world-renowned author, traveler, and drinker. On July 21st he would celebrate his 121st birthday. This calls for a cocktail named in his honor - the Hemingway Daiquiri. We made a Classic Cocktail Time episode dedicated to his life in Havana and his discovery of a Daiquiri. Find out what was the first version of this Daiquiri and what made it popular all across the world. This classic is still often served in El Floridita, Havana. Just like the bartenders there, we used Havana Club 3 Años, and you should too. Ernest, Happy Birthday, you legend!
· 60ml (2 oz) Havana Club 3 Años
· 30ml (1 oz) grapefruit juice
· 15ml (1/2 oz) lime juice
· 1 barspoon Maraschino liqueur
· 1 barspoon simple syrup
